Summary: Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit shows you how to help improve indoor air quality in your home by upgrading to a high performance air filter like 3M's Filtrete Elite Allergen Reduction Filter.
TOM: Hey! It's Tom Kraeutler from the 2011 National Hardware Show with some tips on a great new product that can help the 40 million Americans that suffer from asthma or allergies.
It's new from Filtrete. It's the Filtrete Elite Allergen Reduction Filter. Now, what's neat about this product that's made by 3M is that this blocks actually 94% of the large airborne particles and it blocks up to 40 times more of the microscopic particles that get through fiberglass filters, so it's very, very efficient.
The key is this number right here. This 2,200; that stands for the microparticle performance rating. The higher that number, the more efficient the filter can be. This product is available for under 25 bucks. I'll tell you what, install this about four times a year. Every three months you replace it in your house and you'll be breathing a heck of a lot easier.
